After being wrongfully arrested by an alien government, Captain Archer and Commander Tucker find themselves in even deeper trouble when their vessel is hijacked in the upcoming episode 'Canamar'. today released the below official synopsis of the episode, currently scheduled to air February 26 on UPN:

Upon leaving the Enolian homeworld in a shuttlepod, Archer and Tucker are mistakenly arrested and placed on a prisoner transport vessel bound for the penal colony Canamar. Before the error can be rectified, one of the alien inmates engineers a takeover of the transport, leading Archer to engage in a dangerous gambit.

'Canamar' was penned by Enterprise co-executive producer John Shiban, a former X-Files scribe who previously wrote 'Minefield' and 'Dawn'. The episode was directed by Trek veteran Allan Kroeker, who helmed the Deep Space Nine and Voyager series finales as well as both parts of 'Shockwave'.

The episode's guest cast is as follows:

  • Mark Rolston as Kuroda
  • Sean Whalen as Zoumas
  • Michael McGrady as Nausicaan
  • Holmes Osborne as Enolian Official
  • Brian Morri as Enolian Guard
  • John Hansen as Prisoner #1

Mark Rolston previously appeared as Lieutenant Walter Pierce in TNG's 'Eye of the Beholder.' His other credits include the films 'Rush Hour,' 'The Shawshank Redemption,' 'Hard Rain, 'Lethal Weapon 2' and 'Aliens.' Sean Whalen featured in the UPN series Special Unit 2, and has also appeared in 'Charlie's Angels' and 'Never Been Kissed.'

Michael McGrady's credits include guest appearances on Quantum Leap, The X-Files and C.S.I.: Miami, while Holmes Osborne played the recurring role of the President on UPN's Seven Days and has featured in films such as 'The Quiet American' and 'Windtalkers.'

According Internet Movie Database, Brian Morri's only screen credit is the film 'Bunny.' The site lists several John Hansens, with the most likely candidate being John C. Hansen, who has guest-starred in Homicide: Life on the Street.

Principal photography on 'Canamar' was separated into two blocks - a six-day stint before the holidays from December 13 to December 20, followed by an additional two days on Monday and Tuesday this week after the cast and crew returned from hiatus. While the majority of the regular cast finished after two days of filming, Scott Bakula (Captain Archer) and Connor Trinneer ('Trip Tucker') were required for the entire shoot, most of which took place on the Enolian prison transport.
